5 Travel Itineraries for Your Favorite Fictional Locations

Sick of staycations? Consider the wide and wonderful world of imaginary travel.

While there are downsides to these types of getaways (e.g. the sheer impossibility involved), it’s hard to argue against itineraries that include hippogriff rides over the lush wilds of the Forbidden Forest, Misty Mountain hikes draped in wispy clouds, and dragon watching upon the shallow shores of the Narrow Sea.

So sit back and let your imagination sweep you away to the one travel agency to rule them all. Satisfaction is guaranteed — safety, unfortunately, is not.
